ABC News anchor Amy Robach was caught on tape admitting that ABC News killed a blockbuster story about Jeffrey Epstein in order to maintain its access to the royal family, according to leaked video obtained by James Okeefe and Project Veritas.
ABC News, which ran thinly sources stories about then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, claimed in a statement that the word of Epstein victim Virginia Roberts didn’t meet ABC’s “standards” for reporting. Yes that’s right. ABC admitted that they do not believe women.
Robach writes in a prepared statement:
“As a journalist, as the Epstein story continued to unfold last summer, I was caught in a private moment of frustration. I was upset that an important interview I had conducted with Virginia Roberts didn’t air because we could not obtain sufficient corroborating evidence to meet ABC’s editorial standards about her allegations. My comments about Prince Andrew and her allegation that she had seen Bill Clinton on Epstein’s private island were in reference to what Virginia Roberts said in that interview in 2015. I was referencing her allegations — not what ABC News had verified through our reporting.”
“The interview itself, while I was disappointed it didn’t air, didn’t meet our standards. In the years since no one ever told me or the team to stop reporting on Jeffrey Epstein, and we have continued to aggressively pursue this important story.”
ABC suits said in their own statement:
“At the time, not all of our reporting met our standards to air, but we have never stopped investigating the story. Ever since we’ve had a team on this investigation and substantial resources dedicated to it. That work has led to a two-hour documentary and six-part podcast that will air in the new year.”

The media for years attacked Mike Cernovich, whose open records lawsuit helped bring to light the sex trafficking networking involving Jeffrey Epstein. ABC did NOT join that lawsuit, and never credited Cernovich for his reporting.

ABC’s decision to coverup a major story involving Jeffrey Epstein had real world consequences, leading civil rights lawyer Harmeet Dhillion to ask: “How many women were trafficked … by Epstein and his support network and his support network of procurers, politicians, the rich and the famous, during the years when ABC and others covered it up?”
